A team and film crew from Redbull added dozens of new bolts to the Compressor Route on Cerro Torre. It flew in the face of what they said prior to leaving for the trip.

Sad story. I'm starting to wonder about sponsorships for "extreme" sports/activities by companies who are only selling a life style or product that is not directly associated with the sport itself. Would a film crew from say BD, Petzl etc, do the same thing? I would think that they have a better feeling for the community and the ethics of the activity. Redbull on the other hand, is only selling the extreme nature of their athletes to get people to buy a product that is not significantly different than dozens of other products on the market. The major purchasers are not climbers, nor would a climber boycott dramatically change their bottom line. Of course, sponsorship money talks, and I doubt we'll see anyone passing up on the cash due to their sponsor's questionable activities allowing for their projects to go forward. I do hope the climbing community give them hell over it though.

Will Gadd's on the incident.

It's interesting to read his thoughts since Red Bull is one of his sponsors.

Thanks for that Jim, certainly gives some deeper insight into the situation.

Will's got another on the subject. It also sounds like he's trying to talk to Lama about it. I expect another post in the near future.

Starting to sound like my concerns about the sponsor were off. Although its yet to be seen. Perhaps in the hiring guides for the filming, RB didn't know the ethics of those involved, and Lama didn't put his foot down, or pay attention? Still sad and as Will wrote: "a cluster"

I think its shitty that they added the bolts in the first place and apparently lied about it, but i guess I dont really understand the purpose of chopping them. it doesnt really undo what was done physically and it certainly doesnt undo the arguable ethical wrongdoing of placing the bolts, but it does mean that, if lamas crew goes back, they might end up replacing bolts (although they would have to be monumentally stupid to do so). In any case, once the bolts are there, why not just leave them for people to use. If the climbing community agrees that badly placed (in terms of ethics) bolts should be chopped, why arent all the bolts on the compressor route gone (they arent, are they?)
